Based on Studs Terkel's best-selling book of interviews with American workers, award winning Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted: the school teacher, the parking lot attendant, the waitress, the mill worker, the mason, the trucker and the housewife...just to name a few. It's a hightly original look at the American landscape that is simply impossible to forget.

Spring Quarter 2019


By Steve Yockey
Directed by Sara Goff

Newlyweds Jack and Avery Perch want to enjoy their kitschy Niagara Falls honeymoon, but doubts about their speedy nuptials, the unfortunate history of their room, and the opera-singing concierge aren't helping. Meanwhile down on the boardwalk, a woman who might have been Avery is living something that might have been Avery's unmarried life against the backdrop of rickety carnival rides and fortune tellers. When they collide, both women see their lives flash before their eyes in this magical romantic comedy about the choices we make in love and the things we have to leave behind.
